2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Mild malty aroma. Starts quite mild, fine malty, a bit wheaty-grasy. Not much hoppy notes. So the finish is a bit boring-malty. Okay.

0.2 l draught @ Hausbrauerei Altstadthof (included in beer tasting palette). Pale and light tasting, but since this is not Helles from Munich, there’s some hints of hops. This could be quite refreshing during hot summer day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy, lovely golden body with an off white head. Pretty much no aroma, maybe some light huskiness? Hay & eggs? Crappy light beety taste. The mouthfeel is nice, mind you, but there’s not much to it overall and I’m quite sure that all four of us who were there considered it to be by far the worst of the bunch.

Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a STRONG note of butter/diacetyl, light note of soured fruit.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
An absolute butter bomb. Horrible.
